I cannot get audio from my PS4 to my Beam. I'm connected from Beam to the ARC HDMI on my TV and HDMI from PS4 to TV. Have both set up for PCM and have tried all other combos. This seems like it should be so simple but nothing has worked and Google/YouTube have been no help.
...because I have now called Samsung multiple times to ask if my model (UN46ES6150) will preserve 5.1 sound via the optical port when the source is connected via HDMI (cable box, DVD player, etc. - NOT native app on the TV itself)...and each time the Samsung rep has assured me that it can indeed passthrough 5.1 sound. Any advice or clarity would be much appreciated before I spring for the full Sonos home theater setup. Thank you!
I hooked my Playbar to my Sharp Aquos tv with the optical cable. Directly to each other. I have my Comcast cable box connected to my tv with an HDMI cable. I shut off my TV speakers. No sound! I can play music with no issue, just not TV. I then tested my Playbar on my Vista TV with the same setup. It immediately played the sound of the TV. Please help! I have the total Home Theater setup and I want to use it. Thank you in advance for your help!!
My tv was working and randomly in the middle of the day, the sound quite working. Called Sonos support and they wanted me to change my optical cable. I changed it and still no sound from the tv. Checked all the settings not sure what else to do. Music does play on the sound bar just no tv coming through.
I am searching for a Blu Ray player that can convert DTS and other formats to Dolby Digital 5.1., so I can enjoy my DTS Blu Rays with full 5.1. via the Sonos Playbar (+ 2 Play:1). Sonos has recommened a line of Samsung Blu Ray Players in this thread: https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1945/~/maximizing-playbar-sound-from-your-television Unfortunately most of these are not on the market anymore. Can anyone recommend any Blu Ray players that can convert DTS and other formats to Dolby Digital 5.1.? All Best Anders, Denmark
I am not getting any surround sound from my new Chromecast with Google TV (CCGTV).Its plugged in a Samsung TV. Sonos Beam connected via HDMI ARC.The CCGTV audio settings are set to Auto: Dolby Digital or Manual: Dolby Digital (tried both)The Samsung TV audio settings are Bitstream - PCM (Dolby Digital and DTS greyed out, not available)My TV is playing stereo 2.0 PCM only.The Sonos app only shows stereo 2.0 PCM. My PS4 is in another HDMI input, set to Bitstream-Dolby Digital.The Samsung TV audio settings are Bitstream - Dolby (here Dolby is available)My Sonos is receving a Dolby 5.1 signal, the Sonos app shows Dolby Digital 5.1 from the PS4.So the TV can passthrough Dolby 5.1. Is the CCGTV not outputting the right format?Can someone assist me to find a solution?
Sound cutting in and out on my Sonos Arc after playing Dolby Atmos content on Apple TV 4K I’ve had my Sonos Arc and Sub Gen 3 for about two weeks now and I’m very satisfied with the sound quality, but I’m having some very annoying issues with audio cutting in and out… I have the latest LG OLED TV, a LG GX (same as the CX, just wall mounted). The only two boxes I have hooked up to my TV is an Apple TV 4K and a PS4 Pro, but I’m having sound issues on my Apple TV.Before I explain the problem, yes, I’ve pretty much done all the troubleshooting I can do. Plug everything in and out, check that the cables is properly connected, updated everything, the Arc, TV and Apple TV, everything should be up to date as I’m writing this post. Okay, so here’s the issue, with a half ish solution. My issue: If I play any content that supports Dolby Atmos on iTunes, Apple TV+, Netflix etc. and try to play some music through the Apple Music app or watch any video on YouTube on my Apple TV after that, the audi
I use a Yamaha AV receiver (RX-V2700) that I like very much. I feed my Apple TV, DVD and Cable Box to my TV by an HDMI cable providing surround sound from them all. In addition, I have a turntable that also feeds audio to my current SS speaker system. I am considering using some Sonos speakers to replace my current speakers. Can the Playbar based surround system work with the optical output from my Yamaha AV receiver, allowing me to use all of my devices?
Hi I'm pretty new to all this. Just got a Sonos Beam (to go with an LG OLED55B8SLC TV). It's my only bit of Sonos kit so far. Under sound settings, I have the option to choose either PCM or auto. The setup instructions don't seem to mention which to go for. Which should I choose? (I'm connected via HDMI/ARC). Thanks!
Hi, i would like to know if i can have sound to the Sonos One from my LG 43UM7450 TV. The TV is 2019 model with Airplay 2 and smart speaker compatible.

Hello all, This drives me absolutely crazy and I don’t know why I am having this issue or how to fix it. So in my living room I have a full 5.1 set up - I have a beam, the sub, and stereo paired L and R Sono’s ones. I have the beam plugged in via HDMI/ARC to my tv. On tv itself I have my settings set to bitstream for the HDMI audio format and then the audio format set to Dolby Digital. However whenever I check the audio in on my beam on the settings within the Sonos app it says Dolby Digital 2.0. What gives? When I stream digital movies via the vudo tv app I check to make sure they are Dolby Digital Now I do hear sound out of the stereo pair speakers and the sub is producing bass for scenes but I dont understand why my app doesn't show 5.1. then however when I watch something stupid on cable that I am sure isn’t 5.1 it tends to show it (I also have my cable provider settings set up as well.) So basically I am just curious if anyone can help me on my it says 2.0 when it shou
HiThought I would create this thread as a few have reported this issue in the lpcm update threads that are marked as solved so perhaps best to keep it separate.Issue:Before the LPCM update last week my sonos arc would receive atmos and Dolby digital 5.1 from the Apple tv 4k box, audio settings were set to the default AUTO-Atmos available.My LG CX is capable of passing LPCM. Now since the LPCM update with the above settings I still get atmos from apps such as netflix, apple tv + on the apple 4k box, but any content in dolby 5.1 is now outputting as multichannel PCM 7.1, 7.1 being the issue, it should be outputting as multichannel PCM 5.1 I have seen similar posts with this issue on the same device and other devices as well. Thank you
I just purchased a Sonos Beam and no matter how hard I try to get my TV to play any sound through HDMI 3 which is the ARC port,it just won't.It works perfectly fine through optical in however.My Tv is a 49 inch 2017 model and the set up on the Sonos app keeps failing when it reaches the TV portion.Can somebody help me?Thank you.
Planning to buy a Playbase and sub this week. Already have the 2 Play 1's. While I've done a search and realize there's plenty of suggestions for HDMI switches, I was hoping someone could review my setup and confirm an HDMI switch that would work for me. I have a Samsung UN55D6050 TV from 2011. Unfortunately upon checking manual, it will not pass 5.1 from the HDMI inputs. The TV input will pass 5.1, however I don't use the built in Smart TV. I understand an HDMI switch can resolve this issue. I have 5 devices I use with my TV: 1) Cable Box (HDMI) 2) Blu-Ray Player (HDMI) 3) AppleTV (HDMI) 4) Roku (HDMI) 5) Wii (Component) I use a harmony remote to control all devices with one remote. If I purchase an HDMI switch that supports ARC I should be good right? Will the audio from the Wii get passed via ARC to HDMI switch and out the Playbase as well? Or will I need an HDMI switch that also has component inputs? And can someone recommend a few different options for these
Have installed a new Samsung MU9000 TV that has the Samsung One Connect hub that everything plugs into. Used the Optical Toshlink connection between my Playbar and the One Connect. Setup everything according to the guidelines on Sonos. While it does work the volume output is low. I have to put the volume at max in the app just to get an almost acceptable leve. Have searched various forums and not heard this issue tied to anything with this generation of smart hub. I have verified that the Samsung One Connect is configured for optical cable out, and is transmitting Dolby Digital. Any ideas?
I just swapped out my playbase with an Arc. It sounds great, but I am trying to get it to play Dolby Atmos content. I have a 2017 LG OLED B7 TV that has an ARC output (not eARc). I have found a few streaming sources with Dolby Atmos content, but it will only play through the TV speakers (when switches to internal speaker). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
In order to control the volume of a sound system through my Sony TV/remote is to connect to the tv with a HDMI cable. The Sonos sound bar connects with a optical audio cable so I cannot use the remote to control the volume of the Sonos. Can anything be done.
I have Media source: Apple TV (3rd Gen) Video Player: Optomo UHD52ALV Projector connected through HDMI from Apple TVAudio: Sonos Playbar (set up as surround sound with sub + 2 Sonos One) and Connected through Optical cable from Apple TV When I play Netflix on Apple TV and choose audio English [Original] (5.1) or Amazon Prime to choose a movie with “Dolby Digital Plus” The Sonos app shows the Audio IN as “Stereo PCM 2.0” in both cases.Checked Sonos App for System Update and shows “Your Sonos system is up to date”.Bought this audio splitter https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07JDGBBXF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and cant get the 5.1.Is this even possible?
